The Ryan Reef is an isolated rocky reef off the north coast of South Georgia . It is 800 m north of the eastern boundary of the entrance to Doris Bay .

The reef is unnamed on a map based on surveys by scientists from the British Discovery Investigations between 1925 and 1931. The UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee named it in 1955 as part of surveys carried out by scientists from the South Georgia Survey from 1951 to 1952. It is named after Alfredo R. L. Ryan, from 1946 President of the Grytviken- based whaling company Compañía Argentina de Pesca .
